Protected Natural Spaces
Natural Monument of Guaza Mountain (Montaña de Guaza)
An excellent example of an extrusive dome. A volcanic edifice of notable proportions, formed by lava spillage from a very viscous magma (acid) impeding an extensive lava flow.
Roque de Jama Natural Monument
It is the largest of the volcanic edifices of Tenerife, a spout of phonolite formed under the surface and was later uncovered by erosion. It has interesting samples of botanical endemism.
From the Sentinel’s Watch (Mirador de La Centinela) one can obtain a wide perspective of the Valley of Saint Lorenzo and a whole sector of this part of the island.
The coastal sector still conserves spaces of notable interest, although unfortunately the urbanizing process has swallowed up the important saltworks of El Guincho.
